In Lower School art, students experience their creative selves by experimenting with foundational concepts such as line, shape, color, pattern, composition, form, texture, and scale. Classes feature a wide variety of materials and techniques, including papier-mâché, painting, drawing, constructing and assembling, fiber arts, printmaking, and handbuilding with clay.

The hands-on interdisciplinary curriculum introduces students to the artwork of many artists, cultures, and movements throughout history and intentionally incorporates classroom social studies and math themes. Students feel a sense of accomplishment as they grow in skill while fully embracing the notion that practice makes progress.
